10 pounds - that's a lot of belly. Matt is right - both places have great pork belly in their meat cases. For 10 pounds, you might also consider going out to 99 Ranch in Van Nuys. They do brisk business in pork in their meat department, and 10 pounds should be a cinch. I was at the San Gabriel store last weekend and I think it was around $2/pound.
I'm sure Bristol Farms or Gelson's can get some for you. And at the prices they charge, their butchers will even trim a lot of that pesky fat.
